Re: Is Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) Relevant to Koine'?

Got it. Thank you all. What throws me off is that I have read where some grammarians have bemoaned the state of LSJ, such as the quote below: No one has drawn more attention to the methodological issues and, well, let’s face it, flaws, in our New Testament Greek lexicons than John A. L. Lee. In a g...

Re: The Meaning of the Phrase ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων at Heb 1:2

(1:2a) ἐπʼ ἐσχάτου … ἐν υἱῷ. Some editions of the TR, followed by older German commentators, include these words in v. 1. Ἐπʼ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν is Septuagintal, used in eschatological contexts such as Nu. 24:14 and Dn. 10:14 LXX, passages which have other points of contact with Hebrews. Ἐσχάτου is ...

Re: Stephen Pribble Intro

Welcome, Stephen, nice to see someone from the Only Perfect Church here... :lol: Seriously, feel free to contribute at any time. Ian has already informed us about your project, it will be interesting to see how it develops. My one suggestion would be that any grammar has to be informed not simply by...

Re: Meaning of κειράσθω in 1 Cor 11.6

Here is BDAG for quick reference: κείρω fut. 2 sg. κερεῖς Pr 27:25; 1 aor. ἔκειρα; aor. mid. ἐκειράμην. Pass.: 2 aor. inf. καρῆναι (TestJob 9:3); pf. ptc. κεκαρμένος LXX (Hom. et al.; ins, pap, LXX; Jos., Bell. 6, 5; SibOr 3, 359) shear a sheep (Artem. 4, 51 πρόβατον; Babrius 51, 3; Jos., Ant. 6, 29...

Re: Is Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) Relevant to Koine'?

If yes, would you say that LSJ is on the same level of authority as, say, BDAG? LSJ is used out of desperation. It is fossil evidence from classical philology a dinosaur which went out of existence along with "western civilization." Read The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I'm not sure what a work o...

Re: Understanding names in Koine Greek

Kind of looks like Smyth says otherwise. https://ibb.co/nFjsLJ Smyth is giving a grammatical explanation which analyzes the forms and makes sense to us. An ancient speaker of the language would not necessarily have thought of it in the same way. The ancient grammarians have some sense of this, but ...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

I am grateful for Textkit. But I am sorry for having stopped learning Crosby and Schaeffer textbook, even though it is helpful. Maybe it is mainly for Greek students, but not for biblical Greek students. I learned it because it was the first and only textbook I ever had. C&S was my beginning text m...

Re: Textual variant in Jude 1:6 - αλυτοις

The expression ἀλύτοις δεσμοῖς is found in Aeschylus Prometheus vinctus L.155 εἰ γάρ μ' ὑπὸ γῆν νέρθεν θ' Αἵδου τοῦ νεκροδέγμονος εἰς ἀπέραντον Τάρταρον ἧκεν, δεσμοῖς ἀλύτοις ἀγρίως πελάσας, ὡς μήτε θεὸς μήτε τις ἄλλος τοῖσδ' ἐγεγήθει. νῦν δ' αἰθέριον κίνυγμ' ὁ τάλας ἐχθροῖς ἐπίχαρτα πέπονθα.
